Mental Health Awareness Week!

Hi Everybody,

It is Rachel here (British Taekwondo Safeguarding Officer).

I just wanted to talk to you all about Mental Health Awareness Week!

The theme for this years Mental health Awareness Week has been Nature. I’m sure over the past 12 months we’ve all seen plenty of nature and have enjoyed opportunities to engage with nature in ways we might not have done before. If you would like to find out more please click here.

As we return to training I thought I’d take the opportunity to remind you of the UK Coaching course ‘Mental Health Awareness for Sport & Physical Activity’ which can be found here.

Recommendations for the course include:

“A very good course to highlight mental health issues in sport, I would highly recommend for any coach whether this be grassroots of elite.”

“This course really opened my eyes to things that could be happening in my sessions that I now feel confident dealing with.”

This course is currently available at a reduced rate of £12. I would definitely recommend this course to anybody who has the time!

If you do take up the offer, please let me know how your thoughts and I’ll promote your feedback! My email address is safeguarding@britishtaekwondo.org.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
